ceremonies with Lisa
With her warmth, sincerity and compassion for what she does, Lisa Hunter was everything we hoped for in a wedding officiant.Sent on 07/18/2021
Lisa was the perfect fit for us, as we wanted to create our own unique ceremony mixing traditional with non-traditional religious and wedding customs. Initially we were hesitant about designing our own ceremony, but as soon as we talked to Lisa, it was a go! She reassured us that we could do and have exactly what we wanted and that she would walk us through the steps to achieve our dream wedding ceremony. Lisa talked with us, took an interest in us and in our family, and encouraged us to enjoy and connect with each other on a deeper level throughout the planning phases of our wedding. Through her “soul of my wedding” emails, we came to realize that the process of planning our ceremony would be as important as the ceremony itself. With lisa’s ceremony prep documents and guides, we were able to create something of our own that was unique and personal. Lisa was right there to guide us, always open to our thoughts and ideas and sharing her expertise.
Lisa’s website says. “Elopements and weddings with heart and soul”. We say, nothing could be more accurate! Our backyard wedding -surrounded by our kids and other family, and with Lisa who felt like one of the family, was so full of “heart and soul” and joy and love. Because Lisa took the time to get to know us, and listened to what we wanted and hoped for, we had the wedding ceremony of our dreams.

Everything We Had Hoped For & More!
We hired Lisa as our officiant for our June wedding at the Denver Botanic Gardens, but you have her for so much more than just your ceremony! Her process of getting to know you as well as her tips, exercises and advice for a harmonious marriage are absolutely amazing and a welcome part of the months leading up to our big day.
On the wedding day itself, Lisa knocked the ceremony out of the park and every.single.person in attendance thought that she was a close friend that we had known for many years! A quick side note, Lisa is also a fabulous singer!
There were a handful of snafus/issues with the sound system and AV techs at the gardens, but Lisa kept the whole thing moving without a hitch and with plenty of humor. :)
We cannot thank Lisa enough for her expertise, warmth, and passion for what she does! The ceremony was amazing and everything we hoped it would be.Sent on 07/19/2021

Lisa is amazing!!
Lisa has been absolutely magical right from the start - she has a wonderful way of being warm and kind, while still remaining professional. She took time to really get to know us as a couple, and truly cares, checking in regularly even after our wedding to congratulate us on anniversaries and give us lovely little "love adventure" activities.
The preparation process she uses to create ceremonies is beyond amazing, she's so incredibly detail-oriented and asks couples to really dig deep into the core of their connection to find what's most important to them in their marriage. I seriously wonder if she's ever had couples decide NOT to get married after asking themselves some of these tough relationship questions! LOL But for those of us who have a genuine connection, it only deepens the bond and allows us to articulate our feelings. And in the process, she hones in on exactly what we need to create the perfect wedding ceremony.
The ceremony itself was simply magic. Lisa couldn't have been more at ease, which put us at ease, and her upbeat yet centered energy with the bridal party and audience made sure her delivery was outstanding. The ceremony she created for us was very non-traditional and earth-based, but she did it in a way that even the devout Catholics in our family weren't phased, because the entire thing was just beautiful and full of genuine love. We had so many people come up after Lisa left to tell us how much they enjoyed her!
Lisa made the whole process of preparing for our wedding, and the big day itself so special... I wish we could get married again! We may very well have her come do some other ceremonies with us in the future. :)Sent on 07/24/2021
What a great company to work with. We highly recommend! Thanks again, Denver Wedding Films, LLC
I worked with Lisa for a wedding at River Bends in Lyons. She is wonderful! She stands out above other officiants I have worked with in the depth of connection she had with the bride and groom and how much she clearly cared for the union she was orchestrating. Every word she spoke was sincere and meaningful. And from a dj's stand point she was super easy and fun to get along with and work with for the ceremony! I would highly recommend her. -Shaun Piazza Sound Slingers
